Occasionally, you may want to schedule a reboot of the SonicWall appliance. The SonicWall has features to schedule a restart at a specific time or to restart with a countdown timer.
1. Access the SonicWall CLI and login to the administrator account.
TIP: See How to login to the appliance using the Command Line Interface (CLI) for additional information.
NOTE: Do not access the configuration menu. Your prompt should read: admin@firewall> NOT admin@firewall#
2. Type the appropriate command based on your needs:
Restart at: YYYY:MM:DD:HH:MM:SS format
NOTE: The full numbered format is required- 4 digit year, 2 digit month, 2 digit day, 2 digit hour, 2 digit minute, 2 digit second
Restart in: # days/hours/minutes.
EXAMPLE: Restart in 7 hours
NOTE: It cannot be set to restart in hours and minutes, only one variable can be assigned. To restart in 1 hour and 30 minutes, you would simply set it to restart in 90 minutes.
